What is MEGA?

MEGA - private, trusted and secure cloud storage and collaboration platform

Anyone could be forgiven for thinking that all cloud storage services are the same, and all that separates different cloud storage providers are simple features and price differences. But this is not the case. MEGA states they understand the importance of keeping data and conversations private while providing a fantastic user experience that does not impact a user’s right to privacy.

Launched in 2013, MEGA is an accessible zero-knowledge cloud storage provider to deliver user-controlled end-to-end encryption. The product design is governed by the principle of not letting our no-compromise end-to-end encryption get in the way of usability.

MEGA is a privacy-focused cloud storage and chat provider with over 220 million registered users globally. Users upload over 65 million encrypted files a day. With MEGA, they are in control of who can see, access and share their data. MEGA can be used from all major devices and platforms from anywhere with the Internet.


Zero-knowledge means that not even MEGA can access the user's files, and only each user holds the key to unlock their content. MEGA also offers the ability for users to verify the credentials of contacts when sharing files, using cryptographic fingerprint technology, ensuring they are authentic before gaining access to your content.

Ease to Use

People need to send and store a lot of files, and a cloud provider should accommodate this. its generous 20 GB free offering will help users get started, and when more is needed, their competitive paid plans will support up to 16 TB for individuals or unlimited for businesses.
Using MEGA, friends, colleagues and customers can download shared files without the need to sign up, and they’ll still benefit from MEGA's transfer speeds.


Audio and video calling with messaging come with every MEGA cloud storage account. But unlike some other video calling providers, the user can know conversations are secured with MEGA’s user-controlled end-to-end encryption. Available on desktop and mobile.

Mega is well suited for expanding cloud storage with advanced encryption, while still being the easiest to use of all the cloud storage apps. It’s Mega’s substantial free tier and solid referral program it’s a great addition to any growing business utilizing cloud storage. I’d recommend mega to my colleagues to backup, share, messages, videos, documents, anything!

MEGA is great for storing and syncing files across devices. It has a great web interface, as well as a sync tool for desktop and a mobile app that works very well on iPhone. (I have not used the Android version of the app.) I like the overall usability, as well as some of the features like the QR code and contact list functionality. I like the file versioning and file management features as well.

What works less well for me is collaboration with other users, and file sharing among users. I have not been able to find a way to view all files shared with me from other users in the same view as my own files. In fact, when files are shared with me, the only way I have been able to locate them is through Notifications, which is sub-par. I would much prefer to see all shared folders alongside my files, without having to make a copy of the shared folder, thus losing the ability to sync with another user's changes, as well as using up my storage space.

If what you want is to share your files on the web, in forums or only among friends, MEGA is a great tool for you because you can upload, share and download large file at fast speeds. Now if what you want is not to share, but only to make a backup of your files, MEGA is equally good and functional, since it provides more than enough space (50GB) so you can store all your files and documents.
The only bad thing is the download and upload speeds are variable and are not always the best; on many occasions you will find that it is very slow, but luckily, from my experience this only lasts a few minutes and then it will return to being as fast as ever.
